Operating under the title of senior VP of communications, and commuting to the Stamford, Connecticut headquarters from her Brooklyn home base, Blanchard will report directly to David Ellen, senior executive VP of Charter.

Blanchard most recently served as chief communications officer for Condé Nast. But she spent 19 years at NBCU, most recently at the senior VP level.

Justin Venech, who has occupied Charter’s top corp-com role for several years, will remain group VP, reporting to Blanchard.

"Cameron is a true communications professional whose expertise and leadership will be an asset to the Company," said Ellen, in a statement. "Cameron will play an instrumental role as Charter continues advancing new technologies and services and strengthens its leadership position in the industry."
